Bernie Lomax lives!
Well, sort of: The titular dead guy from 1989's "Weekend at Bernie's" and its equally improbable 1993 sequel, was always a goner. But the man who played him in both films, veteran actor Terry Kiser, is very much alive and kicking.
On Friday, Kiser dropped by the TODAY plaza to toast the film's 25th anniversary and hang out with Al Roker, who tweeted about the lively encounter.
Kiser is currently in pre-production for a TV series about the mob called "Family Business." May he live long and prosper.
